so many good Stella Blues out there...

03-14-1993 is a great call... not much of a show, but great version, nonetheless...

check out 05-15-1983 for perhaps the best 80s version...

other versions of note include...06-18-1974, 10-21-1978, 03-17-1988, 03-21-1994 and the last great sB is 05-26-1995 (makes you forget about all the problems swirling around in 1995)...

Thanks for the tip...I am a big Stella fan (even had a cat named after the song)...always looking for that version that includes an inspired Jerry vocal, especially the critical "I've stayed in every blue light cheap hotel" section...any other suggestions from the folks out there?

also, one quibble i've had w/the tune over the years; wondering if anyone else agrees: I think the song is so beautiful, so heartfelt and profound, that I can't stand it when the last fading notes suddenly erupt into a "Round and Round", "Truckin'", or some other Bobby type rocker.

I know in the early days there were many stand alone versions, but I find they lack the power and majesty of many of the later years versions. So i'm kind of between a rock and a hard place on STELLA. I want a version that I can listen to completely, without the jarring interruption that cuts it off to go into a Chuck berry tune.

So i'm probably asking a lot but if anyone can point me to a version that meets this criteria I would be most grateful, as always.

Searching for the ever elusive Stella...
It's next to impossible to find any 'developed' version that doesn't come with a Bobby rocker coming on its' heels, this is true. It would be great to find that stand-alone, kick-ass version but so far he's some others:
11-04-77 Cotterrell Gym (Playin'in the Band follows)
10-21-78 Winterland (Sugar Magnolia follows)
10-25-79 Vets New Haven (Good Lovin' follows)
10-02-80 Warfield (Sugar Magnolia follows)
05-23-82 Greek Theater (I Need A Miracle follows)
09-11-82 West Palm Beach (Aroundx2 follows)
03-18-88 Kaiser (Throwing Stones follows)
10-26-89 Miami (Not Fade Away follows)

and then there's always Standing On The Moon...

Wicked Stella Blue?

Check out 09-16-78, Giza, Egypt, set II. Nicely developed, but Bobby rocker afterwards, Sorry.

I'll second the 11-4-77 version - Colgate.
Stella (and Jerry's vocals) are tasteful, heartfelt and delicate through and through this version. And, more importantly, it finishes an incredible second set run of Playin'>Eyes>Estimated>The Other One> Drums> Iko> Stella> Playin'. Stella is perfectly set in this run, cooling down an incredibly energetic and fast version of everything else up to that point, before the end of the shows erupts.

Yes, that IS an excellent Stella. In fact the whole 11-4-77 show is a killer and contains my favorite Brown Eyed Women ever in the first set.

And doesn't that 2nd set just jam and jam and jam some more?

ahhhh, sweet '77!

6/22/83 and 4/9/82 both head into "Going Down The Road"...perhaps a little gentler than the usual bashers.
I agree, I always felt that the show was pretty much over after the killer post drums ballad of any show, but somehow I also have to appreciate most in attendance want the show to end up-tempo.
4/9/82 was the first real Grateful experience for me. I still remember how much I admired someone who has the courage to play the likes of Bird Song, Loser, To Lay Me Down and Stella Blue in front of a crowd of that size.
I was hooked.
(To be fair about it...there was also the draw of Sailor>Saint>Drums>Space>Other One>...)

Thanks for those suggestions...out of all the songs to emerge from Stella, I agree GDTRFB is least jarring...it allows youy a few precious seconds to really absorb and get "closure" for any spectacular Stellas.

OK, so this is sort of late and maybe no one cares...but...

I was listening to 3-20-77 Winterland today and it has a most perfect Stella out of The Other One and the Dead actually end it nicely! All you regulars have that show by now but I thought I would pass it on anyway.

One of my favorite shows also has an incredible Stella....5/8/80 .
As far as transitions I liked the few times I witnessed Stella into Playin (reprise) eg. 6-27-82, a very gentle segue!
